Cinema of Law Film Series

Our Berkshire Law Library is happy to present their third annual Cinema of Law series! Films about the law will be shown in the auditorium of the Berkshire Athenaeum again this year on Tuesdays in March. Each of the films in the film series will be introduced by a member of the Berkshire Bar. No admission will be charged.

Dates, films and speakers are as follows:
  • March 10 The Return of Martin Guerre to be introduced by Justice Francis Spina
  • March 17 Witness for the Prosecution to be introduced by Joseph Pieropan
  • March 24 Kramer vs. Kramer to be introduced by Hon. Rudolph Sacco
  • March 31 Norma Rae to be introduced by Kevin Kinne
A presentation will begin at 6 p.m., and the movies will follow. Free Popcorn will be served, and there will be a display of law books related to the subject of the movie from the Law Library’s collection.

Gary Smith and Jack Houghton will be previewing the series on John Krohl‘s radio program “Good Morning, Pittsfield” on WTBR sometime in early March. Law library staff members hope also to have a display related to the film series on the 1st floor of the Athenaeum.
